The Albatross is my favourite bird. You can find 15 of the 22 species of Albatross in south African waters although a few have just been recorded as vagrants. We have never had the North Pacific birds- Waved,Black-footed, and Short-tailed but there is one record of Laysan's. We are missing some of the New Zealand birds as well. Gibson's, White-capped, and Antipodean. There is one doubtful record of Amsterdam- the one albatross I still need to see
This shot is of an Atlantic Yellow-nosed Albatross Split by IOC several years ago
